Utah is good, but I wish he was living at 1600 Pennsylvania Washington DC. Please don't give obama any ideas of moving here, unless it is in the next couple of years.

It looks like Mitt is positioning himself for a run at the senate.

West Jordan, UT

Maybe you would like to be Governor?

I wonder did Stan (M) & Francine (A) Smith bring Roger, Hailey, Klaus, & Steve?

Mitt's family pays buku taxes. So this is a good thing for the State or anybody with kids in Utah Schools.

I can't see anything negative in his family moving back to Utah (even for a short time). But I'm sure somebody out there will find a way to spin it towards the negative.

It's good to have him back. I wish him nothing but the best. For the country it is unfortunate that he is not sitting in the White House rather than it's current occupier. Romney would have done much good than who we have now. Wish there was a push for a nationwide recount.

Do everybody in Utah a favor and stay in Boston or New Hampshire or San Diego or wherever you live these days...he wouldn't have been any better in the White House than Obama.


Any where he lives is fine with me as long as it's not at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.Thank goodness!!

Dear Mitt:

Mitt was born and raised in Michigan.
And has lived in Massachucetts since 1975.

He has only been a "resident" of Utah once in his life, 1999 - April 2000,
and only did so to get a $54,000 tax break on his house in Park City, Utah by stating it as his "primary residence".

And he STILL had to fight, deny and legally challenge that, since it disqualified him from running for Governor of Massachucetts in 2002.

Utah, Home?
Hardly - it's just another vacation house for tax evasion.
Just like his house in [LaJolla] SanDiego, CA.

South Jordan, UT

We love Mitt and Ann Romney. Welcome to Utah. We hope to see you at some of the stellar events here. We, also, wish you were on Pennsylvania Avenue. Whatever the reason for building a home here, welcome!

Go Cougars!

Airnaut: Wow! Some people sure are bitter and unhappy.

Welcome home, Mitt!

Dear Mitt,
So glad you will be here near Zion. Wish you had won the election, America would be in much better condition. At least you would have made some much needed effort. Best wishes to you and your Family.

Norco, CA

Glad your back in the intermountain west. We appreciate all you, Ann and your family have done for our country. Thank you much.

to Cats 4:43 p.m today...

And some people are acting like a 12 yr old girl at a Boy band concert at this "news".

Maybe we can get Dick H's spin on how this will positively impact byu football this season?

I doubt Mitt is positioning himself for Congress. All they do is talk, posture, argue and spend. Mitt is a leader, not a talker. He'd make a TERRIBLE Senator.

Governors rarely transition to Congress. Same goes for successful business leaders. They're too used to leading to just go out and do the party's bidding and waste time talking endlessly.

We do need to find somebody to replace Senator Hatch though... any ideas?

Jon Huntsman, Jr., would be ideal. Rational, intelligent, caring for everyone (not ust the affluent) mainstream, and good contacts with the people who can get things done. And, to appeal to the majority of people in Utah, a Republican.
